Summary : Please Not Post

This isn't exactly a UFO sighting, but my dog needed to go out, so about 3:am I put her out, had a drink of water and a smoke, I noticed up in the sky, a comet shaped oject (tear drop at a 45 Degree Angle) between the middle star of Orion and his lower 2 star legs. Its was fading in and out much like Hale-Bop and it was at a roughly 45 degree angle, in for 10 seconds out for 10 seconds... Its was stationary for abut 45-1:30 minutes before the sun came up, then I losted tracked. I understand this wasn't a UFO but a weird comet like object in the sky and I undertstand that you may not be the correct people to speak too but I called my local FBI and they didn't seem to be too interested. I understand this is halloween and they probably get a lot of crack pots but I didn't know were else to turn. The FBI wanted to patch me through to the Air Force and I knew this wasn't a UFO, just a strange comet that I knew wasn't suppost to be in the star cluster of Orion, as I use Orion as my personal guide to find the rest of the night sky everynight. I also understand that tonight we could of been having Ice crystals forming in the sky, but the rest of the stars looked crystal clear, it was just this one tear drop shaped object. If you would like to contact me for a better and more detailed report…((Name and number deleted))
